NASA Google+ Hangout with Space Station Astronauts
At 3 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT), NASA will hold a live Google+ Hangout with astronauts who have recently returned from the International Space Station.
The hangout, which will be carried live here, will feature Canadian astronaut star Chris Hadfield and NASA astronauts Kevin Ford and Tom Marshburn. You can ask a question of the astronauts during the hangout using the Twitter hashtag: #AskAstro
"The astronauts will answer questions and provide insights about living and working on the space station as part of a multi-national crew. As the culmination of the work of 16 different partner countries, supported by five different mission control centers and crew members from the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe and Russia, the station is widely regarded as a model example of international cooperation."
